1. I got my swimming in on Tuesday for this week. Have I mentioned that I am really enjoying swimming? I still suck at it but maybe a little less each time I go. I still do mostly breast stroke but increase the number of free style laps each time. This week I swam 12 freestyle laps all in groups of two. Soon I am going to go for 3 in a row. The gravity is not pulling me toward the bottom of the pool as strongly during my current two. I think I could maybe do 3. By summer who knows? I am doing the whole (my version) rhythmic breathing thing. It goes by quickly and starts my day out with a great feeling. I love my swimming day routine but right now I only want to do it once a week. I have not been on my bike for a week and a half though!
2. I ran on the treadmill on Wednesday. Not a lot of fun but I did what I set out to do. I also ran today with no Ipod. That was really no fun but another 5 miles done.
3. I'm rereading a Jodi Picoult book, not my favorite but I always enjoy her books. This one is Second Glance and she autographed it when I went to hear her speak at a Barnes and Noble. It's been awhile since I read a book that really grabbed me. But having just said that I really enjoyed the book about Matt Long. It is a very good story and makes any injury I have had seem like something I shouldn't even mention it is so inconsequential.
Nothing too exciting here although being back at running is always exciting. I am considering a race this weekend to get one in November but no definite plans yet. Enjoy the weekend. Mine starts tomorrow. Now that is exciting! And I have plans for the day which are all about me! Then evening plans that include my husband and friends.
